    Brakes are for posers who can't ride.
    Helmets are okay if you wear a sweet cap.

    My bad.
    I didn't know that was a heavily debated topic. I don't know many riders who are fast that aren't using clipless. Maybe it's different in other areas.

    As already stated, the points of contact are the best first upgrades.
    Figure out the ratio you want.
    Then get a decent wheelset.

    I'd personally upgrade to clipless if you get remotely serious...

    I've done two metric centuries while carrying a bag.
    Provided it isn't loaded up with a ton of ****, anything under 35 miles or so isn't bad. Then it starts hurting

    I'm asking but I don't see it happening. If it were newer I'd contact paypal but I've had it for 5 months so I'd say my time is long gone.

    You mustve worked on a lot of the bikes I saw on instagram with this crack too. Just saw one last week and of course a team rider was trying to justify it.

    It's just frustrating.
    My 721 is bombproof. Backed into it with a car, wrecked it a few times, it's been locked up, rained on and has about 3000 miles on it. No issues.

    It may have been bad logic, but I'll tell you how I got to that.
